Managing your ileostomy with the right appliances
To manage your ileostomy you will use a drainable pouch. For this type of appliance the bottom of the bag is open, which allows it to be emptied regularly.
Having a large drainable outlet (7cm), this enables an easier cleaning of the outlet and emptying of the pouch. On our Flexima® ranges, an integrated soft Roll'up clamp is available. Our ileo pouches of the Proxima® ranges can be closed with a resuable rigid clamp or a single use soft adhesive clamp.
If you experience high output, you can use any of our high-flow pouches in both one-piece and two-piece systems. For more comfort, your high flow pouch can be connected to a Flow Collector providing a safe answer to the high output indications.
